Vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild Carpet BGR13

An intriguing vintage Moroccan Beni M'Guild runner featuring a classic lozenge network that morphs into an unexpected riot of pattern and color. The faded purple field allows hints of multi-colored boucherouite ground to show through, lending depth and texture. Cobalt blue, red, and black punctuate one end. Woven in a mix of wool, cotton, and mixed fibers.

Beni M'Guild

The territory of Azrou, Ain Lheu, and M'Rirt is the main production region for this tribe, neighboring the Zaïane. The Beni M'Guild tribe has a long tradition of carpet making...their work tends to be quite dense, as tribes in this region can withstand harsh climates. Common Berber symbolism can be found in many of their woven works, while other carpets are solid fields of natural color devoid of any patterns or motifs. Subtle nuances in hue create waves of color, sometimes revealing pattern from below.
